Canucks’ News and Rumors: NHL Draft, Soderstrom, DiPietro & Kielly

While the hockey world is watching some crazy first-round action in the Stanley Cup playoffs (who would have thought the wild-card Columbus Blue Jackets would be up 3-0 on the Tampa Bay Lightning?), Vancouver Canucks fans are watching other fans’ teams play and looking to their own team’s future. In this set of news and rumors, I want to focus on the young Canuck prospects or potential Canuck players. Here’s a look at the upcoming NHL Draft, and two of the young goalie prospects already in t...

Jacob Markstrom Emerging as Elite Goalie for the Vancouver Canucks

VANCOUVER — Jacob Markstrom’s quiet evolution into an elite NHL goaltender for the Vancouver Canucks hasn’t surprised his teammate Alex Biega. The defenceman had already witnessed the six-foot-six netminder’s ability to stun opponents four years ago when the pair were playing together for the Utica Comets in the American Hockey League. “You could just tell — when teams came into the building, they could tell that he had the capability of robbing the game. Even if we didn’t play well whatso...

The Boeing 737 Max is now one of the most controversial airliners of all time. Here are 3 others.

The Boeing 737 Max airliner has been grounded by regulatory agencies and airlines worldwide. The action comes after two nearly brand-new Boeing 737 Max 8 airliners crashed within a matter of months. The crashes, the grounding of the fleet, and the public furor make the Boeing 737 Max one of the most controversial airliners in recent memory. Other airliners that ran into trouble include the de Havilland Comet, McDonnell Douglas DC-10, and the Airbus A320. The US Federal Aviation Administration...

Sierra Canyon basketball escapes Westchester to advance to CIF State Regional final

CHATSWORTH >> The Westchester boys basketball team showed no signs of intimidation. “We’re never going to be afraid of anybody that we play,” Westchester coach Ed Azzam said. “That’s never an issue.” The Comets had the Sierra Canyon faithful on edge Saturday night. Looking up at the scoreboard, the defending Open Division state champions were tied with just under two minutes to play, the hopes of the Trailblazers’ second straight state title hung in the balance.

Canucks’ Reid Boucher: Untapped Potential

Currently sitting sixth in AHL scoring is the Utica Comets’ Reid Boucher who is boasting 49 points in 42 games in 2018-19 — the Vancouver Canucks are missing their window of opportunity to extract Boucher’s potential. On top of his 1.17 points-per-game, Boucher is also fourth the AHL in goals (24) despite playing three games less than the leader, who has 27, and is in contention for the Willie Marshall Award, presented to the player who scores the most regular-season goals. He’s already crushed ...

The Popdose Interview: Reverend Horton Heat’s Half New Band and Whole New Life

In the year 2019, some 33 & 1/3 years after they started (give or take), The Reverend Horton Heat is bigger than ever. This past November, Victory Records released the band’s 12th album, Whole New Life, described by front man Jim Heath as “the most positive material I have ever written. It focuses heavily on rock and roll but there is a human interest parallel – songs about growing up poor, vices, marriage, having children and walking the rapturous streets of America.” The album landed high on m...

Is Demko Here to Stay With the Canucks?

Late last week, Thatcher Demko was recalled from the Vancouver Canucks’ AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets. Space was created, probably on purpose, for their young 2014 second-round pick and Boston College product from San Diego, California, by trading Anders Nilsson and putting (and losing) Mike McKenna on waivers. Although the Canucks have been grooming Demko for what seems like years now to eventually take over the starting job in goal, his immediate role is expected to be as Jacob Markstr...

Canucks Prospect Pipeline: Olli Juolevi

The Vancouver Canucks’ defensive core has been lacking for quite some time, so when the team drafted Olli Juolevi fifth overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, fans were thrilled. The scouting report echoed nothing but promise. “He shows mastery of his position under the most challenging of circumstances, and his poise, calm and assuredness are the stuff of pillar-style defencemen.” – Craig Button, TSN However, Juolevi’s somewhat slow development pace has put a lot of people into the skeptics...

Skull asteroid to fly past Earth

A creepy, skull-shaped asteroid will fly past Earth on November 11th and it’s not Voldemort’s Dark Mark, or a Halloween hoax. The asteroid was first spotted on October 31st, 2015, leading NASA to name it the “Great Pumpkin” asteroid. When it was first seen, it passed 300,000 miles from Earth, but this year it’s a little farther at 25 million miles. Unfortunately, given its distance and small diameter (around 2,000 feet) the “Great Pumpkin asteroid,” or “death comet,” can’t be seen with the n...
